    I just had some problems posting on the wp forums, my post does just not appear, without giving me any errors. so maybe someone here can give me some hints:

    My problem is that I have not yet activated the widgets.php plugin but still can use widgets? I activate them, drag them around, and see the changes live on my site.

    So somewhere the widgets must be activated. I looked into my themes functions.php file but its not activated there, where else could I look?

    I really want to turn widgets off because I want to use sidebar modules, but until I deactivate somehow these widgets I can't activate sbm.

    please give me some hints.

    sorry for double posting, somehow posting the script timed out and I refreshed the browser.

    I found out its not related to any plugin, as I found a 1-click-deactivate all plugins plugin, so after deactivating all plugins, the widgets were still active...

    must be related to the theme. gonna check out its homepage right now.

    I almost answered my own question:

     New User Features
        * Widgets (no longer a plugin but available under Presentation tab)
              o Widget capability added to Default and Classic themes

    so I am trying dr. googles advice on how to get rid of widgets...
